Item 9. Undertakings

 

(a) The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes:

 

  (1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this registration statement:

 

  (i) To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act of 1933;

 

  (ii) To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date of the registration statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the registration statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or decrease in volume of securities offered (if the total dollar value of securities offered would not exceed that which was registered) and any deviation from the low or high end of the estimated maximum offering range may be reflected in the form of prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule 424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume and price represent no more than 20 percent change in the maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the “Calculation of Registration Fee” table in the effective registration statement; and

 

  (iii) To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the registration statement or any material change to such information in the registration statement;


provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) of this section do not apply if the registration statement is on Form S-8, and the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the registrant pursuant to section 13 or section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in the registration statement.

 

  (2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

 

  (3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

(b) The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the registrant’s annual report pursuant to section 13(a) or section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan’s annual report pursuant to section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that is incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered herein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(h) Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.


SIGNATURES

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, the Registrant certifies that it has reasonable grounds to believe that it meets all of the requirements for filing on Form S-8 and has duly caused this Registration Statement to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized, in the city of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on May 31, 2017.

6 Performance Adjustment, Vesting and Forfeiture

 

6.1 The number of Shares to which the Participant is ultimately entitled under the Award is dependent on the Relative TSR Performance over the Performance Period. The actual number of Shares to be awarded will be calculated as follows:

 

  6.1.1 the number of Performance Shares made under the Award x 0%, if the Relative TSR Performance of the Company is ranked at a level below the 25th percentile performance of the constituents of the S&P SmallCap 600; or

 

  6.1.2 the number of Performance Shares made under the Award x 25%, if the Relative TSR Performance of the Company is ranked at a level equal to the 25th percentile performance of the constituents of the S&P SmallCap 600; or

 

  6.1.3 the number of Performance Shares made under the Award x 100%, if the Relative TSR Performance of the Company is ranked at a level equal to the 50th percentile performance of the constituents of the S&P SmallCap 600; or

 

  6.1.4 the number of Performance Shares made under the Award x 175%, if the Relative TSR Performance of the Company is ranked at a level equal to or higher than the 75th percentile performance of the constituents of the S&P SmallCap 600,

whereby the actual number of Shares to be awarded for Relative TSR Performance between percentile levels is calculated on a linearly interpolated basis.

 

6.2 Subject to Article 6.3 of this Plan, the number of Shares as calculated in accordance with Article 6.1 of this Plan shall Vest in two (2) equal annual instalments:

 

  6.2.1 the first instalment (50%) will Vest upon approval of the number of Shares to be awarded to the Participant, as calculated in accordance with Article 6.1 of this Plan, at the Annual General Meeting in the year following the end of the Performance Period;

 

  6.2.2 the second instalment (50%) will Vest on the (4) fourth anniversary of the Award Date.

 

6.3 Except in the circumstances as described in Article 6.4 and Article 7.3 of this Plan, vesting of the Shares is subject to the Participant’s continued appointment with the Company on the Vesting Date.

 

6.4 In case of a Change of Control of the Company (including any of its successors) resulting in one of the following situations:

 

  6.4.1 this Plan and/or the Award Agreement is terminated;

 

INTERXION HOLDING N.V. 2017 EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR LONG TERM INCENTIVE PLAN

EFFECTIVE DATE: 13 MAY 2017

 


Table of Contents
  6.4.2 the employment agreement or management agreement between the Participant and the Company (including any of its successors) is terminated by the Company (including any of its successors) other than for Cause; or

 

  6.4.3 the Participant is offered a position which is a material demotion to the current position of the Participant,

all Performance Shares shall Vest immediately, whereby (i) in the event the calculation of Article 6.1 of this Plan has been performed and the ultimate number of shares to be awarded has been confirmed in writing to the Participant, the Participant shall be entitled to the number of Shares as calculated in accordance with Article 6.1 of this Plan, or (ii) in the event the calculation of Article 6.1 of this Plan has not been performed, the Participant will be entitled to the number of Shares that equals the number of the Performance Shares as set out in the Award Agreement.

 

7 Leaver provisions

 

7.1 Unless provided otherwise in each relevant Award Agreement or in this Plan, the unvested portion of Awards made to the Participant shall immediately be forfeited if the Participant ceases to be the Executive Director.

10.1 The Board, upon a proposal of the Compensation Committee, shall be allowed (but for the avoidance of doubt, not obliged) to make adjustments to the class and number of Shares to which this Plan applies and/or any other aspect of this Plan in each case to prevent dilution or appreciation of the rights of the Participant in connection with any increase or reduction of Shares which were issued without the Company receiving adequate consideration in exchange, such as (but not limited to) the payment of a dividend, a stock split, a reverse stock split, a re-capitalisation, a combination, or reclassification or any other similar event.
